Rambo , National Treasure Top DVD Charts


Lionsgate’s Rambo was the top-performing new home video release for the week ending June 1, bowing at No. 1 on the national rental chart and No. 2 on the sales chart, behind holdover National Treasure: Book of Secrets, from Disney.

Rambo also topped the Blu-ray Disc sales chart for the week, with the new “Rambo Trilogy,” also from Lionsgate, debuting at No. 3. “Treasure,” which came in at No. 1 the previous week, slipped to No. 2.

On the overall sales chart, “Treasure” and Rambo were followed by “The Adventures of Indiana Jones” trilogy, from Paramount, at No. 3 and Raiders of the Lost Ark at No. 4.

In rental stores, Rambo generated an estimated $8.6 million, or 20% of its theatrical gross of $42.8 million, to take the top spot on Home Media Magazine’s rental chart for the week. “Treasure,” the top renter the previous week, generated an additional $7.2 million to capture the No. 2 spot.
